UK Airshows various shows in the UK

UK Airshows

I have been attending airshows in the UK for as long as I can remember, with the first one
probably being Biggin Hill in 1965 with my father.
We went to it every single year and even after my father died, we always made the effort to attend.
Being based in Kent it has always been my local show and remains an annual fixture in my Airshow diary.

It was later on in my teens, when I got my first car
(which gave me the freedom to explore airshows outside the confines of Biggin!)
 that I attended my first ever RIAT at Greenham Common on a very wet and rainy day.
Since then I have attended many shows over the years, but unfortunately I was not initially into photography,
so do not have much of a record of those magic days. However, I have made up for it since then!

We hope you enjoy our selection of photo reports on the variety of airshows that the UK has to offer.
This will continue to grow over the coming months, to include both memorable shows from the past,
and hopefully many more that have yet to be enjoyed!We may not always have the best of weather in the UK,
but we certainly do have a fantastic selection of venues and aircraft to enjoy.
Long may that continue.... Paul Drabot.
